Mr. Mule: Art Brut

Birds: Art Brut

Carlos Alves: Prolific Works

Carlos Alves has been serious about art since he was a child and it shows in his passion for making things out of clay, glass, salvaged artifacts, broken shards and recycled ceramic knick–knacks. Alves has created mosaic murals for walls, floors, driveways, and swimming pools. Alves is now applying his artistry to large public and private artwork projects throughout the US and abroad. Most recently Alves finished the fountain on Miami Beaches’ Lincoln Road, in front of the Colony Theater. He originally tiled the fountain after Hurricane Andrew and when the City of Miami Beach installed a new water feature to the fountain, they called Carlos to embellish the new fountain.
It is a magnificent coral reef theme, one Alves uses throughout a lot of his work. Many of you may recognize his work as you walk thru Art Center
South Florida, Miami Beach City Hall, Miami’s 8th Street Metro Mover
station and the 40’ Sand Castle at the Miami Children’s Museum.
